The conference was organised by the Resolution International Committee, of which I am a member, and attended by over 60 English family lawyers. The topics were all focused on different international areas of family law, including child abduction, orders for relocation of children, and financial orders after a foreign divorce.
My talk focused on issues relating to international divorces, in particular "jurisdiction" - where a case can be dealt with if a couple have links to more than one country. You might think that the question "where can I divorce?" should have a simple and straightforward answer, but in fact the international and national rules and regulations for this area are extremely complex, and likely to get more so after Brexit.
At present, it is pretty unclear how some areas of international family law will operate post-Brexit (in fact, my slide illustration for this is below ...).
I am looking forward to the day when the fog clears, and I can give a seminar with perhaps a bit more detail about the future for international divorce.
